Warriors vs. Jazz: Who will get Andre Iguodala’s minutes?

With Andre Iguodala out, Jacob Evans and Alfonzo McKinnie are probably in line for more minutes. The Golden State Warriors will face the Utah Jazz tonight without the help of Andre Iguodala, who is out with a calf injury. And that leaves plenty of minutes for Patrick McCaw, who is looking to prove himself worthy of... oh. Right. He’s still holding out because he wants...more minutes. OK, OK... I know it’s not just about more minutes, as Anthony Slater of The Athletic has previously made clear. But moments like tonight’s game are exactly why McCaw’s holdout has been so frustrating:...

Watch the Warriors stars get hilariously pranked by Careless Whisper

If you’re looking for a good laugh, you’ve come to the right place. The NBA season can be exhausting and excruciating. It’s long. It’s grueling. There are a lot of games, a lot of difficult moments, and a lot of injuries. So a little levity can be just what the doctor ordered. Thankfully, the Golden State Warriors received that message, loud and clear. NBC Sports just dropped an outstanding video starring the Warriors five All-Star starters. In it, the players are given headphones, playing the popular Travis Scott and Drake song “Sicko Mode”. Right when the beat is about to...

Andre Iguodala is out for tonight’s game against the Jazz

The Warriors will be short-handed in the second game of the year. The Golden State Warriors began the season a little bit short-handed. They opted to only fill 14 of their available 15 roster spots, and one of those 14 is DeMarcus Cousins, who is out for the forseeable future due to an Achilles injury. And they’ll be even shorter on Friday night, when they face the Utah Jazz in their second game of the year. Wing Andre Iguodala has officially been listed as out for the nationally-televised contest.

Andre Iguodala is questionable against Utah

He’s feeling better, but don’t expect him to play. The Golden State Warriors haven’t been entirely healthy in the first week of the 2018-19 NBA season. Aside from the Achilles injury that will keep DeMarcus Cousins sidelined for a few months, Andre Iguodala exited the season opener in the second quarter, after experiencing calf tightness. With two days off between the opener and game two, Iguodala had some time to relax and rehab, but he’s still not all the way back. Iguodala went through Friday’s shootaround, but is still listed as questionable for the evening game against the...

Warriors Wonder: Curry activates “Sicko Mode” in final preseason game

Stephen Curry did a ton of damage against the Los Angeles Lakers in the one quarter he played. He left due to illness and didn’t return, probably sickened by his own dominance. My new favorite Stephen Curry highlight mixtape is entitled “Sicko Mode,” synced to the killer Travis Scott/Drake banger of the same name. It’s a beautifully edited music video tracking Curry’s triumphant return to the postseason from his debilitating knee injury last year. It’s just clip after clip of Curry mercilessly terrorizing and dancing on hapless defenders. I didn’t expect him to activate that...
